So my dad recently told me to start taking gummy vitamins. For the first couple days, I took the recommended two as suggested for kids over four. I’m 15 (and not very nutritious) and 118 pounds, so I decided to take four instead. Is this healthy? They are the lil critters gummy vites.

What a great invention gummy vitamins are. I personally don't think 4 would be harmful but I'd suggest reading the label on the bottle to see if there are any warnings.

Hi @Sophie dont worry about taking too much of it. The worst thing that usually happens is that the “overdose” will lead to mild diarrhoea. But to get that you need to have taken the whole bottle really.

I just now saw this and it seems like something I would worry about. I take a multi vitamin once a day and sometimes I can’t remember if I took it or not. I believe the worst that can happen if you take too much is your body will just pass the excess vitamins since you can only process so much. No deal harm can be done.
